Heroes and Recruitment

Last Updated:

One of the best ways to gain strength and abilities in Primitive Era is to gain heroes. These can help you in combat and also in your development. Recruiting the best heroes is hard to do but will be essential to your success as you reach the higher levels of the game. Our heroes guide will help you understand how to get heroes and how to use the effectively.

When you start the game a few heroes will join you during the tutorial phase and once you build the Heroes Lodge you will be able to use recruitment scrolls (tickets) to recruit more. But what are the uses of the heroes and how do you get the best ones?

Types of Heroes

There are 2 types of heroes that you get in the game and 4 rarity levels. The 2 types are Growth heroes and Battle heroes. The rarity levels are shown in the colours, Green, Blue, Purple and Orange. Legendary (Orange) heroes are the best in the game. As a new game the number of legendary heroes is limited at the moment, but more will be added to the game over time.

Recruiting Heroes

Once you build the Heroes Lodge building you will be able to use scrolls to recruit heroes. Heroes can be recruited from 3 sections: Stellar recruitment (blue scrolls), Epic recruitment (purple scrolls) and Legendary recruitment (orange scrolls). At certain times there are also other option available to use special orange scrolls that give you a better chance of recruiting orange heroes (or in some cases a guaranteed orange hero).

Heroes and Recruitment

With each type of scroll there are different chances to get heroes. And in many cases you may only get hero exp items Dew, although these have their uses too. The best chance to get orange heroes is with the super recruitment (orange) scrolls. There is still only a low chance with these though so do not expect to get a lot of great heroes in a hurry.

If you recruit a hero that you already have then you will automatically get a Hero Bracelet. The bracelets can then be used in some cases to unlock hero skills. Or also then can be exchanged in the Braveheart Guild building to gain Ritual Dew which is also needed to upgrade skills.

Legendary Recruit Pity

The legendary recruit option will guarantee you a Legendary hero within 30 pulls. Your 30th recruit scroll will be Legendary. You can get one sooner than that and if you do the count will reset.

Getting Scrolls

Every day you can visit the Heroes Lodge for some free recruitment chances. 3x Stellar (blue), 1x Epic (purple) and 1x Legendary (orange). You can can also earn scrolls through completing Daily Tasks and in other events in the game. You can also buy packages from the shop that give you orange scrolls to use. Be aware though that like all other scrolls they only give you a chance to recruit heroes.

Stationing Heroes

Growth Heroes can be Commissioned (stationed) in the resource production buildings or other development buildings to give boosts to productivity. This is done in the Home of Heroes building. Upgrading the building will allow you to commission more heroes. You will need to level up the heroes and unlock the relevant skills to make use of their buffs. All of these can be useful in some way, although the higher rarity heroes should be prioritized where you can.

Battle heroes are used (stationed) in the battle March Queues, You will need to unlock the Military Marquee buildings and the Elite Territory building that you get from choosing a Custom. The you also need to complete research for each of the Marches to unlock the slots for up to 3 heroes per march.

There are a lot of combat heroes available in the game but you will only be able to use a limited number at a time depending on the number of legion hero slots you have. In this case Orange heroes are by far the best and should be used and upgraded whenever possible. Purple heroes can be used to fill spaces where needed. blue heroes are only used at the start and can then be split for hero medals and green combat heroes can always be split for medals.

Heroes and Recruitment

Hero Skills

Each hero will have skills that can need to be unlocked and leveled up for them to be useful for you in the game. They will determine the job that they can be assigned to.

You can see any heroes skills be finding them in the hero menu and tapping on the scroll icon at the bottom of the screen to see the skill list. You can then tap on each skill to see what it gives. Orange heroes have 8 skills, Purple have 6, blue have 4 and Green have 2 or 3.

Each development hero will have skills related to its job, for example improving the gold income, or speeding up troop training.

Combat hero skill will benefit your legions in battles. All of these are useful but some will be very important and some will be very hard to unlock.

For all combat heroes the first skill will let you increase the number of troops that that hero can command, this will affect how many troops you can have in the row of the legion formation that you place the hero in.
